Volunteer Team Visits SVO

 

A Special Visitor

        The Tanzanian General Secretary of Social Welfare, Children and Health Dr. John Jingu came for a visit in September. He had nothing but glowing praise as he toured the dormitories, Medical Clinic, and numerous projects including the vegetable gardens, cows and pigs.

A New Doctor

       

     Most of you know about Simon. He grew up at Samaritan Village and is now one of the doctors at the Medical Clinic. Well, we’re about to have another doctor in the family—Scholastica! She was brought to the orphanage by social welfare when she was just a year old. She’d been found abandoned in Arusha in an area near Lake Manyara. She attended St. Monica Primary School and Scholastica Secondary School. She’s always liked to play netball (volleyball), sing, watch TV, and play with dolls as a child. Her dream was to someday be a nurse. She graduated last summer from Form 6 and was accepted into Medical College where she now plans to be a doctor. She began her studies in October. There’s no doubt she’s going to make a fine doctor!

 

Home For Christmas

   We always make sure the children have an incredible Christmas Vacation. Thanks to the generous donations of our supporters all the children had the opportunity to visit some amazing places including some historical sights and the National Museum of Tanzania. There was also over 900 children from the community and from other Children's Homes who attended the Annual Christmas Celebration. Finally, the older children did Community Serve for the poor in the community.
